The Village Hall offers Notary Services to the public free of charge.
The Village Hall offers “No Soliciting” stickers for residents who wish to have one displayed on or near their front door of their home. This sticker prevents any solicitor from approaching your home. However, if one should, and you have your sticker displayed, we request that you call the Police Department at 847-362-4449, and report the person or person(s) who had violated our policy.
In November of 2007, the Villages of Vernon Hills and Libertyville started a new initiative to ensure veterans returning home from service overseas are welcomed home and recognized for their honorable duty. The program, named “Operation Welcome Home,” is an extension of the Blue Line For The Front Line effort, in which both towns have supported specific units deployed overseas and helped Veterans in need since 2003. Residents with a service member returning home may register for the program by contacting the Vernon Hills Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit at (847) 247-4889.

Parking Restrictions Top of Page
OVERNIGHT PARKING RESTRICTIONS: Village Ordinance 22-263 prohibits parking on the street between 2am - 6am. While some private streets may be exempt from this ordinance, many associations have enacted ordinances prohibiting the same on private streets, thereby giving police officers the authority to issue parking tickets for overnight parking on these streets. If you live on a private street and are not sure if you can park on it overnight, you should contact your association or contact the police department.
PARKING RESTRICTIONS DUE TO SNOW: According to Village Ordinance 22-321, vehicles cannot be parked on Village streets for 12 hours after a snowfall of two inches or more. While this may serve as a minor inconvenience to some residents, it is absolutely necessary to have a free path for our snow plows to clear the streets in a timely fashion. There is limited parking for guests on streets overnight. You can call the Police Department for specifics and permission to park at your host's home.
For additional information regarding Parking Restrictions please review our Municipal Code
